In case you missed it, it is my birthday month. I feel like my 28th year has been a huge one for me. I truly feel as though I have come into my own. I have found myself, I have learned to love her and I am so motivated I feel like I can take on just about anything (but please don’t test me on that).
I feel like now is a good time to reflect and while I don’t necessarily know what I want for the year ahead (I just know I want it be BIG) I do know what I don’t want so what better way to set it in stone and send it out to the universe than to write about it on here.
It will not be another year of me putting unnecessary deadlines and timelines on my life. I am going to try and accept the fact that I am exactly where I need to be. I am not in a race with myself or anyone else, I am not letting anyone down, and I am doing my best.
It will not be a year of me wasting time on materialistic things that don’t bring happiness, on people that cause more unhappiness than joy, on comparisons that bring no one but me down and on trying to make everything perfect when really, I know I can’t, because I am anything but a perfectionist. I am a beautiful mess and I have learnt to love that about myself.
It will not be a year where I put everyone else before myself. This is not selfish, it is the only way to be the best person I can be to others. “You can’t pour from an empty cup” or something like that.
I won’t be hiding myself from anyone or anything, anywhere. Who I am is on full display now, you like her or you look the other way.
What I really hope my 29th year will be is a year of growth, a year of making a mark in the world and the year of taking this blog and my dreams to the next level.
Do you like to reflect around the time of your birthday? And do you find that it helps put the next year on the right track?
